American
Pennsylvania 6, is a new restaurant that is changing the landscape of the Herald Square neighborhood. Bringing with it the feeling of Old New York and a new taste of classic American dining, Pennsylvania 6 is a 21st Century cross between the Oak Room and the Oyster Bar. (The name is a tribute to Pennsylvania 6-5000, the phone number of the nearby Pennsylvania Hotel, made famous in the song of the same name performed by the Glenn Miller Orchestra.) Born of casual American roots with a sophisticated culinary twist, boasting a raw bar stocked with the finest oysters and shellfish, and an artisanal cocktail bar, a craft beer list, and an eclectic wine list, there could be no better time for its introduction, as the neighborhood continues to evolve and the bordering NoMad neighborhood becomes a burgeoning dining destination with The Breslin, John Dory, the Ace Hotel and NoMad.

Food was either over or undercooked. 3/4 meals needed to be sent back. Nothing was comped even though the waiter agreed the food wasn’t cooked correctly. Once the food was redone it was good but still not worth the cost.

Good experience, they where a bit busy though, which tends to slow things down a bit.
The food was very good, the tuna crude was excellent, the honey and goat cheese was excellent, but if you dont like onions , leave them off.
The burgers where great, add the avocado and bacon 😁

The P6 was a surprising find, and spacious. The host was bubbly, friendly, and provided quiet seating (as requested), on the 2nd level overlooking the whole restaurant--great view! Carolynn the waitress was fantastic. I enjoyed a Kale salad (lightly dressed) for starters, followed by the 20 ounce Bone-in Rib Eye cooked exactly as requested (med-rare) with Chimmichuri, a side of creamed spinach, and all was perfect. I paired this with the house Sonoma CA, Pinot Noir which surprisingly turned out to be excellent as well. The overall meal (while the 400% MU on the steak brand is questionable) was excellent, compared to steak houses serving the same/similar. Overall, worth the experience, especially for a special occasion, and I would surely come back again to try the local fare (e.g., burgers, wings, beer), while partaking in the vibrant bar/sports scene on the main floor. Keep up the good work.

I love this restaurant! I came here for a business dinner and although the bar was packed because there was a sports game on, we had a lovely time! I have celiac so it is sometimes hard finding a restaurant that has both gluten free options and dishes for the picky eaters. Penn 6 has a full gluten free menu and can cater to all dietary needs (including picky eaters). I highly suggest this restaurant for all occasions! Although if you are heading there for a business meal or a date, I would suggest checking if there are any big games on before booking haha. On the other hand, it seemed like a really fun place to watch the game!

Food was superb. Service was outstanding. Had a 4:45 dinner reservation on a Tuesday night. Very quiet when we arrived, but was very busy by the time we left, particularly the bar area. The staff did not rush us, however, and their attentiveness did not diminish. All four of us enjoyed every aspect of the meal from it’s creativity to it’s preparation. That includes the cocktails. Will recommend and return.

The first table we sat at was filthy. Moved to another table, which was fine. Food was good. Booth seats aren’t attached to the floor so they aren’t very stable. Tennis reruns on TV, which was strange. Otherwise it was fine.

I took some clients to lunch here and it was a great experience. Food and service were fantastic, pricing was reasonable and it had a great "NY" feel for my guests (who were out-of-towners). Location is great - close to Penn station. I will definitely come back.

Second time here. They changed the menu. More creative and lots of dishes used the same ingredients so if you are avoiding something like beans you need to ask for an accommodation which they are happy to do. That said, sometimes I don’t want to have to come up with a substitution. Appetizers great. I think i would order a bunch of small plates from this menu rather than a main course. Waitress was excellent - told us about a happy hour drink special and kept them coming. The atmosphere is nice. Everything clean and new. Excellent location to MSG.

We were able to grab a bite at the bar before an event at MSG. Their menu has a nice variety of food (salads, seafood, pastas, meats, etc). The surrounding places were either too casual or just limited to just pub food. Great bar for cocktails and offer a nice selection of beers on tap as well. Service was good and we we’re able to attend an event on time at MSG.

God awful loud!!! Couldn’t hold a conversation without yelling at each other. We’d asked for a quiet table so they put us upstairs which was accommodating - so a plus for the service. BUT the noise level even there was unbearable. We will not return.

Great menu, we each had a fish dish that was cooked perfectly, nicely plated, with creative sides. There were a ton of things on menu that I would love to try, a big inviting BAR with big TVs. Old wooded feel to restaurant that makes it look like a throwback...gets very busy pre-MSG events which is a testament to the quality of the restaurant.
